The tensile strength of the silica-filled NR vulcanizates is enhanced with increasing total silane content in the grafted NRs corresponding with the increased modulus and reinforcement index, as shown in figure 4a.
This present work compares the [T.sub.g]s of the silica-filled NRs with different compatibilizers taken from tan 5 peaks, as shown in table 4: The [T.sub.g]s of the silica-filled vulcanizates with TESPT, and OTPS--and MPDTS-grafted NRs, are shifted to a higher temperature compared to the one without compatibilizer, due to an increased degree of filler-rubber interactions which restrict the mobility of the polymer chains.
The results in table 4 show that the use of OTPS--and MPDTS-grafted NRs as compatibilizers gives slightly lower tan 5 values at 5[degrees]C, i.e., a small decrease in wet grip, but lower tan 5 at 60[degrees]C, implying an improvement in rolling resistance compared to the reference compound with TESPT.
